Wasn't Liam Neeson a badass in 'Taken'? And doesn't he look like he's going to be even more of one in 'Taken 2'? Well, guess what -- that's not always him doing those badass things up there on the screen.

Gotta love a trailer that opens with Liam Neeson threatening to kick your ass if you don't watch it. But by now you pretty much know what you're going to get in an ad for 'Taken 2': Liam Neeson making a threat, then carrying out said threat with his fists. It's any wonder this new "internet exclusive" trailer doesn't end with your face being punched in.
It's amazing that Liam Neeson - at the age of sixty - has become one of cinema's most reliable asskickers. You'd think he'd be worried about social security or his knees or back, but no. And in 'Taken 2' he has to do the same things he did in the first film (exact revenge for a kidnapping), except this time it's his ex-wife, and there's a grudge involved. Neeson talks about his character in this new featurette.
They’ve each anchored their own action franchises, be it ‘Taken’ or ‘Shooter.’ But the tantalizing thought of teaming Liam Neeson with Mark Wahlberg for a long-in-development adaptation of William Gibson’s ‘Neuromancer’ has action junkies chomping at the bit … and rightfully so.
The 'Taken 2' trailer is here and it brings with it everything you'd expect: people being taken, crusty Eurotrash bad guys and Liam Neeson being a badass. It's beauty is in its simplicity.
We got a trailer yesterday for 'Taken 2' and today we get a poster which doesn't seem like it took a particular set of skills to work up.
'Taken 2' sees the return of Liam Neeson but instead of being the one on the hunt (remember in the original when he used his particular set of skills to save his daughter?), now he's the hunted.
Yes, yes. We know. Liam Neeson’s ‘Taken’ killer has a very particular set of skills. Skills he has acquired over a very long career. Skills that make him a nightmare for people like us. Those skills gave him a hit. Next they’ll give him a sequel, and that upcoming film has a poster and stills (but sadly no badass tagline like last time).
Liam Neeson has a very particular set of skills. Skills that have transformed this actor, once known for his dramatic, Oscar-nominated work, into an action star. Just in the past few years he's starred in 'Taken,' 'Clash of the Titans,' 'A-Team,' 'Unknown' and this Friday's 'Battleship.' And now he's got his own action franchise as 'Taken 2' is set to hit theaters later this year. Let's take a first look...
Ah, Saturday Night Live, one of the few places where you watch an actor pretend to be another actor while interviewing yet another actor, who is playing himself and is on hand to promote his upcoming movie based on a board game. What madness is this? It's Andy Samberg playing Nicolas Cage chatting with Liam Neeson!
